Ernest Renan Quote

By this we are all his disciples and his successors; by this he has laid the eternal foundation-stone of true religion; and if religion is essential to humanity, he has by this deserved the Divine rank the world has accorded him.


Ch. 5. - Vie de Jésus (The Life of Jesus) (1863)
